Beijing / NYC – Mongolian folk metal band TENGGER CAVALRY is re-recording their demo album Blood Sacrifice Shaman with all new folk instrumentation for official worldwide release on Metal Hell Records in 2015. Currently all principal recordings have been completed and the album will soon enter the post production & mixing stage.
The title, concept and artwork of this album reflects the philosophy of ancient shamanism. Shamanism is the earliest religion in human history, which exalts nature, the grassland, forest and animals. A shaman is a person with the wisdom to understand nature, they could travel to the heavens to communicate with the gods of the wild. Blood sacrifice is one of the most primal forms of sacrifice, with the offering an animal’s blood to the sky father to show veneration.
TENGGER CAVALRY’s third official album, the critically acclaimed Ancient Call (2014 Metal Hell Records) saw them explore the field of pagan folk metal at an all new level, gaining praise from folk metal fans worldwide. Ancient Call retained the characteristic brutal sound from the first official album Sunesu Cavalry (2012) and the moody melodies found on the second release The Expedition (2013). The re-recorded Blood Sacrifice Shaman promises to continue TENGGER CAVALRY’s tradition of releasing some of the most original and exciting albums in the folk metal genre!
